Pathobiology of Human Disease is a Dynamic Encyclopedia of Disease Mechanisms. It offers a complete source of information on morphologic, experimental, and molecular pathology that complements the foundational clinical and diagnostic pathology found in traditional textbooks and other resources.

It bridges traditional morphologic and clinical pathology, molecular pathology, and the underlying basic science fields of cell biology, genetics, and molecular biology, which have opened up a new era of research in pathology and underlie the molecular basis of human disease.

Exakt Technologies

Extreme Precision, Surprisingly Safe

The EXAKT 312 Pathology Saw is the ultimate sample preparation tool and bone saw. Whether you're in a hospital pathology lab or the anatomy department of a medical university, it's the safest, quickest way to gross difficult tissues, especially bone and teeth.

The diamond band does not cut, but grinds very precisely. The result is preservation of the samples, clean surfaces with little or no artifacts, micro fractures or nicks. Plus, there's no immediate risk of injury if the band is touched unintentionally - a first for occupational safety.
